Welcome to the Novel Racers' community/blog.

So who are we? A group of writers who are each other's cheering squad and it all started here. As Kate Harrison decided to pass the baton in this post, this blog was set up as a continuation of the aforementioned cheering squad. Some of us are true racers, others are limping a bit and one or two (*cough-that's-me-cough*) might need to be stretchered off and given mouth to mouth.

As we're all in this together it would be a good idea for each member to introduce themselves as they join up.

We could also mention the novel or piece of writing we're working on, post updates on our progress, promote our individual blogs and websites and discuss published racers' novels.

Self-promotion and community support really.

Still here, are you? Get writing!

Hi hesitant scribe and other novel racers. This is all very exciting - thanks for the new home! I'm writing my first novel - have been for about 18months and hope to have it finished by the end of July - would love to have it finished to enter the Daily Mail comp but not sure that's going to happen! I'm an Aussie living on the South Coast of England and have really benefitted from the novel race. I have novel idea number 2 bubbling away so really keen to get one finished. That's me in a nutshell!

Could someone register me please? I've left a couple of comments here already but they were obviously obliterated somewhere along the line. Maybe we actually have to email Nichola and ask nicely?

Is it not possible to link directly to Novel Racers' sites/blogs? Not everyone has a Blogger ID (though it seems necessary to comment on Blogger blogs, grrrrr)


Nichola said...

Everyone's welcome but one of the admins (so far that's me and CTaylor) would need your email address to send an invite, Jen.

I think you need to be a blogger member to be a blog author, though.

I'm sure we could work something out with a direct link to your blog, though.

I'm not all that technically-minded myself; it's just that blogger's easy to use - to me, anyway!

Jen said...

Caroline, I've sent Nichola your email address so you should get an invitation soon...


Nichola said...

Yup, I got the address and the invitation's sent!
